Antilles - "My Empathy" ep...

i received an amazing package of new releases from Kid Sister Everywhere Records , i'll be posting all of them up over the next week... first up is this Antilles ep, this is the most hand made and organic feeling record that i have encountered since 96'. the front and back jacket panels were created by overlaying 2 separate pieces of paper on top of each other. the outer piece of paper is a transparent piece of vellum that has been decorated with a photocopied illustration. this paper has been folded and placed over a thick and heavily textured stock of paper. the contrasting textures and colors really add to the composition...

the illustration wraps around to the back, i am liking the loose and sketchy ink style! the understated approach to typography was achieved thru simple letraset letters and some good design restraint, i feel it suites the vibe of this record well.

inside there is a "2 x 7" black and white photocopied insert for the liner notes, no lyrics. this is really straight forward, but it looks really tight.

A and B labels were printed to match the vinyl, which is always a good call. i like seeing bands think about the whole package when it comes to design....
